I suck at updating --- Part 10I can't believe it's 2013 --- and I'm still chugging away at a ton of projects in the book world and it's a huge ordeal, so i hope to get some updates here for you soon, but lots of it is under nondisclosure status so i can only post snippets of half of what's going on.
So entertain yourself with this!
WONDERBOOK, the recent present, and how I suckIt has been a crazy whirlwind of a year.
Ever since I started working with Jeff and Ann VanderMeer and all the crazy weasels they drag along with them in this murky starlit bog of a wonderland I have been busy drawing covers for over 30 books or projects, with many more in the process happening -- and I haven't updated on here once since I got my my tip wet, so to speak.
So let me make it up to those few of you who enjoy my rare interactions: I'm going to be posting everything I've done in the last year, in some form of order, very soon. I'm proud of everything I've done, and even prouder that my first cover to cover work with Jeff is going to be released next year in the summer, and like the creature on the cover, it is a leviathan called WONDERBOOK and it will rock your mind. http://www.jeffvandermeer.com/2012/06/18/wonderbook-the-illustrated-guide-to-creating-imaginative-fiction/
I also did the covers for 'The Blood Poetry' by Leland Pitts-Gonzalez http://www.thebloodpoet
My first hardcover design is up for pre-order!How cool is that?
First draft on the Jeff VanderMeer LE book...Well, after wasting way too much time on family of all things, I finally sat down and cranked out the first version of the Jeff VanderMeer limited edition of his nonfiction collection, 'Monstrous Creatures' from Raw Dog press.
I had been rolling what I wanted to do for weeks in my head, but it wasn't till recently that it all came together, and even then the final piece is very different from what I thought I'd end up with.
I'll upload some pics of it when I get the go ahead on any edits, since it's always likely that some changes might be needed, though I was given an amazing amount of freedom on this.
But, editing just gets your brain cranking around problems, so it's all good.
I'm really stoked with what I have so far though, I worked everything in as a complement to the art as a whole, including the logos and back text and I think it's going to look awesome on the shelf and on the coffee table.
I will be uploading the artwork I did especially for the back inna minute.
So what do you do when one of your favorite...So what do you do when one of your favorite writers emails you to say he likes your work and would maybe like to use it?
You pop open that bottle of '64 and slip into something comfortable.
Shit just got real.
hi. i'm alive.i've just been dealing with some really bad depression (like normal), and i had a couple of people i liked use me for crap (like normal), and a girl i really liked, and do just about everything to help her, basically just said 'fuck you' with her complete and utter disregard for our friendship. no it's nobody on DA.
it hasn't been the best two months really.
but i made a bunch of art, and i'll be posting that soon. so if you were wondering, there you are...
and i still have a bunch of my b-day posters for sale of you want one: 10 bucks + s/h, perfect for people who like evil shit or lambs with vaginas in their faces...
When you know that everything is going terrible...You only get calls from people needing advice, needing help, wanting you to fix things, be there for them, help them with their issues...
Honestly the amount of 'friends' I have that actually call me or contact me that want to just do something with me, as opposed to have me fix something they can't, or can't afford is really daunting.
31 years of being used horribly... well, fuck that.

Culdee Fell Engine and Coach AssignmentsYes, I'll be bringing the Culdee Fell Railway into STMY from Season 3, and I've got a couple of stories planned out featuring them. But in order to do so, I've had to come up with some names. Engines 1-8 are named in the Railway Series, as well as Culdee's coach, Catherine. As such, I've had to come up with the others. Here's what I've come up with:
#1 Godred & Matilda (originally - Matilda was reassigned)
#2 Ernest & Claire
#3 Wilfred & Bridget
#4 Culdee & Catherine
#5 Shane Dooiney & Nancy
#6 Lord Harry/Patrick & Matilda
#7 Alaric & Erin
#8 Eric & Florrie (short for 'Florence')

Baldi Basic Animatic Storyboard PreviewNew Animatic of Baldi Basic, Soon! And With colors!
The Characters in there are my OCS Henry and Ellie of my Series called "Send From Above"
I added them because... they are Childs duuuh
Well, i hope you like it
My Opinion On My YouTube/DeviantART FanbaseYeah, uh..it's not that bad, first of all. Sure, most of my YT fans are actually nice to me.
But when it comes to character redesigns, title changes, and name changes?? Hohohoho, some of them can even leave me.
Does it piss me off? No. Does it sadden me? No. Does it make me happy? Yes. They can do what they want, I don't really give a shit.
It's called having opinions, and I respect that. But don't fucking bash me into animating/drawing something I don't want to draw/animate anymore.
Let me do what I want. I'm not going to do what you want anymore because, honestly? I'm not listening to young triggered children anymore. I'm getting older, and it's time for me to face it.
This entire summer was literally just me going through so many character development phases, and some kids leaving me doesn't bother me at all lmao.
But here is way different. I can express myself more, I can share my opinions on certain things, I can talk to my fans, and I can get less pissed off here.
Hello Friends New and Old!Hey gang! This entry's been a long time coming and I've got a lot of ground to cover, so let's just jump in!
First off, to whoever got me the core membership: THANK YOU!! Your kindness was a big factor in my decision to be more active on dA again. That was a wonderful present so much gratitude and hugs. Wow.
NEW FOLLOWERS (and curious onlookers!)
Welcome! Welcome! And thank you so much for your interest in my work. Regardless of what got you here, I really appreciate your time and energy. I've gotten a lot of questions about my work, views, and all sorts of other stuff. Since I've been away for a while, I'm gonna do an FAQ in a week or two to get you guys up to speed. I did want to give you folks a shout-out though since I know there's been an influx with some of my older work making the rounds again. I'm very grateful to have you here.
Now, to my longtime friends here: You're are probably wondering "Where have you been, K-Bo?" Wow. Where to start... Without getting into to
Prompts [additional abnormal prompts]•••
Origin Prompts: Create your Esk's story
Origin Prompts are provided to encourage players to create a backstory and sense of purpose for their characters. You can only submit artwork and writing for Origin Prompts for esk that you own; you are not allowed to do them for other players' characters, unless you are commissioned or are collaborating. You can respond to these prompts as many times as you like, but you will only earn the bonus once per prompt per character. If you received an esk in an ownership transfer that previously had Origin Prompts made for it you are allowed to have a "clean slate" and start fresh with them.
Artwork must be in color with full-body character and a simple to full background that shows a clear environment unles
